On paper, espionage and turn-based strategy games sound like uneasy allies. They represent two sides of a tactical coin. Counterintelligence operations and cover-based shootouts seem like discrete skillsets, agents of different gameplay ideologies. But in Phantom Doctrine, they’re deeply linked. One informs the other; covert spying is the cause to an armed assault’s chaotic effect.
Next month, we’ll be able to see how Phantom Doctrine‘s blend of spy fiction and strategy gameplay fit together. Publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment announced that the Cold War thriller releases on August 14. It’s coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC with a $39.99 price tag.
